With the clutch out or while it's engaging? If while it's engaging sounds like the clutch has been replaced w/o the flywheel being resurfaced.

While engaging I contacted Ford the second say I got her. (18K miles) and they said on test drives she was fine and I messed the car up, so now I get a shuddering and also a grinding. (Syncros) every once in a while and I bought the extended warranty!!!

They can't do that can they? wouldn't that fall under lemon laws for your state our at least your warranty?

If they said it test drives ok, how can they say you messed the car up? Is it messed up or not? Is there a different Ford dealer close to you?

They're claiming it did drive fine before on test drives but when he got it he "messed it up"

Not sure how to help the actual problem but screw them, go down there raise some hell and make them fix it one way or another. You bought the warranty so at least have them look into it to figure out the problem and hopefully fix it. The only hard thing to get around is that the clutch/flywheel is a wearable part that's not usually covered in warranties. But you might be able to talk them into it by complaining that you have barely had it and it's already messing up.

Ya dude. My 07 tranny was so clunky and loud and noisy when shifting when I got it in Dec. '11.
I took to them and all my synchros were bad and some gears. They decided to replace the WHOLE tranny........for FREE. Said it was cheaper and easier than taking the time to go thru it and rip apart the guts.

That's still BS. So what if it was fine when he bought it. So according to their logic, if it wasn't broken when he bought it then no warranty applies. If the service dept won't help you, then go back the sales dept and tell them you are returning it for a refund, it's a lemon. Raise hell in the showroom and raise your voice, they don't like disgruntled customers in the showroom. They'll fix it if you ride em like a rented mule.

Re: shuddering from dead stop

Well even though I havnt spoken to my father much since the divorce when I was little hes actually the sales person that sold me the car and he fed me the "It drove fine" story and thats BS cuz no one drove it an extended period of time. I know its a 3635 or whatever the damn tranny name is and its crap along with all the mustang trannys ever used lol. Id be as bold as telling them i'd return the car but after years of searching I found the perfect car and id rather R&R the tranny

This is you're father doing this, that sucks. I will tell you that sometimes repairs like this come out of the commission of the sales person because the profit on the vehicle would be less. That might be some of the issue.
